Introduction 

This is the transcription of the Apollo 7 flight crew communications 
as renorded on board the spacecraft data storage eq,uipment (DSE), and 
subsequently transmitted (dumped) to Manned Space Flight Network stations 
and ships. Magnetic tapes containing dumped voice and onboard recorded 
ground elapsed time (GET) were forwarded to the NASA Manned Spacecraft 
Center, Houston, Texas. Transcription of these tapes was managed by the 
Apollo Spacecraft Program Office with the assistance of personnel from 
the office of the Director of Flight Crew Operations. 

The Apollo 7 mission was flown October 11 to 21, 19 68. 

Communicators in the text are identified as follows: 

Command module: 

CDR Commander Walter M. Schirra, Jr. 

CMP Command module pilot Donn F. Eisele 

IMP Lunar module pilot R. Walter Cunningham 

SC Unidentifiable crewmember 
Mission Control Center: 

CC Capsule communicator (CAP COMM) 
Remote sites : 

CT Communications technician (COMM TECH) 

In the text, a series of three dots (...) is used to designate 
those portions of the communications which could not be transcribed 
because of garbling. One dash (-) is used to indicate a speaker's pause 
or a self-interruption and subsecLuent completion of a thought. Two

00 00 25 17 CDR Okay, let's go ahead. 

00 00 25 19 CMP Okay, the next one's the hard one. We've got 

to get the glycol reservoir bypass valve OPEN, 
with the inlet and outlet valves CLOSED.

Not the radiator "but the glycol ... It's 
awfully heird to reach, Walt. 

Yes , I am going to loosen up my shoulder 
harness if you think it is okay, so far. 
Okay, not unplug it, just loosen it, huh? 
What do you think, Wally? 

I don't think - Oh hell, we ran't get shot 
down. Are there any systems that you are 
worried ahout? 

Not a thing. 

Bonn, why don't you let me - oh, are you 
already going? Go ahead. 

Did you unstrap awhile ago? 

Oh, I just want to get my shoulder harness 
unhooked. 

One big question mark: we still have to work 
on the system to see if the radiator is flow- 
ing right. 

Yes, I'm just loosening belt a little - 
the strap's a little long. 

That was a lot easier than any simulation 
we've had though, wasn't it? 

Yes, we didn't have ... trying to get in oxir 
knickers. 

Yes, I want to go to - let's go to hot mikes 
and see how it is. 

I can't stand my seat belts ... 

Boy, I've got a couple of problem circuit 
breakers over here myself, Walt. 

I'll guard the hand controls while you guys 
wrestle with your belts. I can't make it up. 
... Okay, ... lock it out here.

No. 

Okay , give me thos e DO ' s again . 

Okay, let's see. Bypass to OPEN, first - 
the "bypass valve OPEN first , and then the 
reservoir outlet valve CLOSED , and last , the 
Inlet valve CLOSED. 

Okay , that ' s done . 

How about that, have you ever "been ... over 
here. 

Well, let's see, we are about 27 minutes 
into tlie flight. We might try to flow our 
radiators. Let's go ECS radiator flow control 
to POWER, Donn. 

POWER. 

Okay, glycol to radiator primary valves, push, 
Wally. 

Look at him go. (Laughter) 

This is our first ... (Laughter) 

Oh well. (Laughter) ... 

What's going on. I can't see what you're 
doing. 

I can't understand moving around and can't 
get hack. (Laughter) I grabbed the valve 
and start doing "boom" - - 

First time had so much room up here. It's a 
resLL ball. ... easy back there. 

This is going to be a real expedition to get 
back in these beauties. (Laughter)

breakers I haven't gotten.

Okay, I'm going to — - I'm going to put 
STEAM/URINE DUMP HEATERS in, switch should 
be ON. Verify that switch is ON down there 
if you can see it, Donn. 

Yes. It's ON, Walt. 

Do you want to move the couch back up yet , 
or do you need to? 

Really, I don't think I need to; I'm up here. 

I think we - yes , I think we oxight to leave

Hey, I found a good place for the pens, gang. 

For the what? 

Pen, like this, see? 

Oh, that's cute. That ought to take care of 
our pencil jazz. 

Okay, let's see if we've got any other good 
things to do here. 

Did you get completely unpacked, Wally? 

I had to. Whenever ... I pulled that handle 
I Just started doing a I80. I had to get 
another hand out. 

Okay, we want to check - we want to monitor 
pretty close for the outlet temperature, 
Donn, to be less than the inlet. It looks 
like it is already doing that. 

It's coming down. It's down to ... SQ far. 

Yes.

Looks like the radiators are flawing okay. 
I'd like to leave their there, arid we've got - 
as far as we can go 'til Doim gets-'out of 
the couch. 

Okay, how about that cesual bum? 

It looks like we have got 73 degrees going in 
and about 60 degrees coming out of the radia- 
tor turn. 

Yes, they are all beginning to work. 

I want you guys to make note of the approach- 
ing night now, which is going to occur at 
about 36 minutes. Look for things like the 
terminator, cloud layers - I hope you have 
no doubt in your mind what yaw is , do you? 

No, but I am not sure just how accurately I 
could pin it down, either, without trying a 
couple of times . 

You need a couple of lines. Donn has the 
good lines, I've got - I think I'll put the 
COAS up there. 

This one is almost perfect for your yaw and 
roll. It's the pitch that's not too good. 

By the horizon, we could get some roll. 

Okay. 

Boy, it gets easy to work in here with that 
zero-g stuff, huh? 

Yes, it sure is, isn't it? All the difference 
in the world. 

Kind of handy. 

... bump my butt ... like that - - (Laughter)

Okay, Dcnn, - I was trying to tell you on 
the pad there, we haven't had that stupid 
thing working in the simulator, the propellant 
tank temperature. 



The light bulb works 



gang. 



It does. It's an open- loop manual control, 
55 to 75. I thought the first time we got 
down I*d see if heater A hacks it - if not 
we'll try it with hoth heaters. It is a 
2lj-hour Job on about a 7-hour cycle, I think. 

Okay, Walt, you just told me - that is some- 
thing to keep an eye on now and then. 

Oh man, is this COAS beautiful for yaw. God 
dRim. See, it rotated- See what I'm doing? 
Let me scoot over here, the flag is down. 
See, I rotate it in pitch - I rotate the 
thing in roll axis with the pitch pulses. 

Just put it where I want it, and man, I've 
got a point to pick right down it. Look at 
that night coming up on us . 

Everybody's talking about 3EF. As you go 

into you see the fuzzy - there is no 

horizon any more. You can't define it. 
Look at it, Walt. 

Yes. 

There is no way to tell where the hell the 
horizon is. 

Oh man, that is terrible, just a big blur. 

Yes, yes, there's no way to tell. 

Well, I can see it on your side hetter,

Okay, that's it. Okay. Let's take one more. 
. . . still take . . . 
Okay, I'm trying to - - 



- - get this fastened down so I won't be in 
your way. That - that optics is going to 
be a real problem to see anything in the day- 
time because there's a lot of light leak 
around it somewhere, and we will - - 

We'll leave the slider out here, put it down 
behind Donn. The slider's up here ... Donn. 
It's not wound. Right? . 

What did you say, Wally? Do not wind it

give us S-band antenna A? 

It's alright now. 

It is? 

Yes. 

Okay. 

We should be able to see the Hawaiian Islands 

pretty soon. Donn could take one, I bet. 

How does that look . . . straight down in there? 

Yes. 

Yes, that's alright. There's ... 

I just see a blur, a mild blur if anything. 

Got daim! 

Do you have the spotmeter, Walt? 

Yes, let me get the trash put away first. 

Okay ,1 ... 

Whoa! You see that? The controllers would 
let us die for something like this! One- 
finger push! Here you go. That's it. 

If you throw, you get a trajectory (laughter). 
What did you get for your spotmeter reading,

come on when I tur:ied the secondary heaters 
on, and I'm judging now with the high radia- 
tor outlet temperaT^-xre , I turned the - cycled 
the secondary heaters ON and OFF and had no 
change of current, so apparently it came ON 
and was immediately shut OFF by the LOGIC in 
the secondary radiator loop. When I turned 
the secondary coolant loop pump to AC 1, in 
the EVAF mode, the glycol evaporator outlet 
temperature came dovn, overshot the control 
range, went down to about 35 5 the steam

Day 1 



00 05 08 22 LMP We've closed the secondary radiators, and the 

temperature came down right smartly. We've 
turned on the secondary coolant loop pump 
and EVAP, and the glycol EV/J outlet tempera- 
ture came right on down, overshot to about 
35 » and seems to be controlling around 1^0, 
and the steam pressure is 0.12. 

00 05 08 hh CC That sounds real good, Walt. 

00 05 08 50 CDR The fogging on the center hatch window is on 

the inner surface of the outer pane. It looks 
like a condensation. 

00 05 09 12 CMP Yes. Yes. 

00 05 09 22 LMP Hey, Jack, I have one anomalous thing here. 

When we flowed the secondary loop, the primary 
RAD OUT temperature is sitting about, veil, 
call it 55, make it 65, and the glycol EVAP 
outlet temperature climbed right on up to 
about 58 - something like that. Makes you 
wonder about the mixing valve working.

Good, may not have to move it again. 

Okay, back to your mixing valve problem. I 
was wondering about that. This thing seems 
to be - The primary GLYCOL EVAP INLET TE"-IP 
valve is sitting on MIN. It hasn't moved off 
of there and I don't know - - 

I think that's called MIN heat. That's okay. 
That is where it belongs . 

That means MIN heat? 

Yes. 

What's that mean? 

It means it is mixing MIIJ, which is where 
you want it. 

Okay, that is where it is. 

Okeedokee. ... secondary glycol. You know, 
we are going to use up a bunch of RCS fuel 
if we have to keep taking ou-d these da-nn 
rates all the time. 

I know. 

We're not going to have as much as we thought, 
maybe, for certain items. It hasn't really 
changed, however. 

Walt, did you say you had sticky fingers? 
Oh, you did get one? I was going to say you 
could get a Kleenex and I'll wet it for you. 
You can do that. I did that. 

Oh, sob, where did the tape go? 

Huh? We're going to need it? Okay, we'd 
better start looking for it. Had it taped 
to the wall, and it is not there anymore. 
It'll show up somewhere. The way everything 
goes up, I expect to find it on the ceiling 
somewhere. I don't see it up there.

saw was the square of Pegasus , so I grabbed

00 05 33 15 CMP On the gyro torquing, but that was because we 

were just on a coarse align. We expected to 
be a couple of degrees off. But I was a bit 
surprised at 2-1/2. I thought that was kind 
of big. So, but the second line came up and 
it nearly was zero. One of them was 12 000 
something ... I could verify it, and we got 
a l80, l80 zero on the DSKY for the preferred 
attitude for the burn in PhO. Yes, FhO. So 
I would say that we're in very good shape.

good on the primary loop also.

00 05 39 10 CC Okay. 

00 05 39 12 LMP Roger, we've isolated our secondary radiator 

again. We should not have to flow it again 
for the rest of the flight. The ECS redun- 
dant component test was completed satisfac- 
torily. I still feel like there's some 
slightly anomalous behavior there on the 
mixing valve, possibly on the primary loop. 
The GLYCOL EVAP OUTLET temperature was 
running at 58 degrees when I turned off the 
evaporator. 

00 05 39 hi CC Roger. Copy, Walt. John Aron is shaking 

his head. 

00 05 39 50 LMP We did check the GLYCOL EVAT TEMP IN valve 

on the cooling control panel, and it was at 
MIK heat , so not much more could be done 
there.

58 degrees?

Who, me? 
Yes. 

Looking for the tape. You knocked me off my 
seat before. 

I did whg,t? 

Knocked me off my seat. 
How did I do that? 

You pushed my leg dowri, backed me up to the 
wall. 

Oh, I did? Your feet react nicely, it's ^ust 
... floating there. 

Wally^ What? . . . 

You guys are going to have to, about the 
next 10 minutes, settle down so I can get 
this ATTITUDE. It's a precise test, we're 
carying down to a degree. 

Okay, you want to get my feet ready? No. 

Did you ever find the tape? 

Well, it's a mystery to me. I don't know. 
The last I saw of it, it was stuck to the 
front wall here. The next time I looked for 
it, it was gone. 

What's this LOW/HIGH? What's that for? 

I haven't any idea what this is for. Are 
we - well, let's see, we're venting, but 
that shouldn't ... accumulator ...? 

Walt, you going underneath t>iere again? I'm 
dead serious, I've got to pass here! I don't

vaJ.ve. For a while, we thought it was stuck 
shut. However, I was able to, by playing 
with it , eventually get it to come back up 
with steam pressure reading normal for awhile. 
It's holding around a temperature of about h3. 
Right now, it's pegged low again. It looks 
like it's possibly the water control section 
of the 21*0 controller. 

00 12 07 05 CC Walt, say again there the last sentence there. 

It looks like what? 

00 12 07 09 LMP I believe it's probably getting down to the 

water control section of the 2^40 controller. 



Day 1 10 U 



Also, ve had a DTO to accomplish here, the 
CRYO stratification for hydrogen. It's - both 
tanks are over 90 , plus or minus 5 > percent 
on the hydrogen , and the procedure calls to let 
the pressure rise to about 260 to 265, and I 
believe that's the spec number, and I'd like 
EECOM to tell me how high these pressures have 
been rising before they - the heaters shut off 
so I'll know where to start doing the 0x0. Over. 

00 12 07 h6 CC Roger. Stand by, we'll get it for you.

00 12 12 01 CDR Roger, we'll go ahead like that, 

00 12 12 03 CC Roger. 

00 12 12 07 LT'tP Did anybody come up with any suggestions on our 

ECS problem? 

00 12 12 09 LMP The malfunctions procedures call for activating 

the secondary loop. Whenever the primary radior 
out - radiator outlet temperature gets above U8. 
I think - now, we've just been doing that and 
kind of going by the glycol EVAP TEMP. I'm now 
reading almost 60 on the radiator outlets 
system, now that my glycol EVAP outlet check 
has gone to about 52. I would like to hold to 
not activating the secondary loop until the 
primary glycol evaporator outlet TEI-IP hits 50. 

00 12 12 1*3 CC Apollo 7, Houston. We concur on that. We kind 

of believe that we're really - not really hot 
enough, and then we're starting to cool down 
when it starts evaporating, maybe overshooting, 
going too cold on the thing. We're working on 
that right now.

00 12 27 10 CC That's affirmative in the R/0 AUTO heaters,

Hey, Ron, it's not a good situation, but I

hydrogen. Pressurizing the - the pressure 
seemed to be stabilized some 2 minutes after 
the time of . . . fuel cells ... 

My data shows that there's possibly a slight' 
drop in pressur'? when I switch the fans ON. 
However, after looking at the needle, I can't 
really be sure. The range of pressures covered 
is very narrow, and we plan to operate by a set 
of ground figures. The pressure band will be

Apollo 7, Houston through Mercury. 
Roger, loud and clear. 

Roger, we'd like to get VERB 06, NOM 21; read 
out the PIPA count. We would like to get your 
onboard readout. Our Y PIPA count down here - 
it has been zero for a long time. 

Roger, we can't very well fix that ... about 
2 minutes. 

Hey, Ron, I completed P5.8 for the hydrogen 
tank pressure at 90 percent level. It didn't 
look to me like we have any stratification. 
Pressures that I noted down did drop a little 
bit, but I'm not sure what distance the NSR 
reading is . 

Walt, you're coming through HF this time across 
there - and I can't - I caji't read you very 
well. Can you talk a little slower? 

Roger, understand. I did complete the hydrogen 
tanks at 90 percent portions of the CEYO

but it is my own estimation that we didn't 
really have any stratification. 

Islands off China in the Sea of Japan . . . 
magazine ? for Peter, frame l8, time 13:^5- 

Frame number 19, time 13:1+7=56; small island. 

- - this upcoming maneuver. We will yield 
about nominal displacement a NC - RCC 1. The 
S-IVB orbit on third day, however, yields a 
displacement between 63 and 87 miles, if we go 
ahead and make the bum. And this is all based 
on beacon tracking, so it's pretty good. 

They think, there's two guys in the LM; let's 
get to it. 

Roger. We're working on the update and we'll 
talk to you again over Redstone.

probably take about 28 minutes to drain the H^O.

Day 1 llh 



00 21 58 02 LMP I did attach the urine collection device and 

voided myself at the same time. I noticed my 
general language on the . , . 

00 21 58 15 LMP At any rate, on that - there are several prob- 

lems have come up that we hadn't particularly 
expected. One is the constant wear ga_nnent. In 
addition to that, there's nothing really large 
enough to accommodate the bag. It makes it quite 
messy when it springs back after completion of 
a defecation. The other alternative is to 
take the - the constant wear garment off the 
shoulders and put it down around your knees . 
Now, in order to do that, you have to disconnect 
the BIOMED sensors, which are not color coded 
incidentally, and the - very difficult for them 
to hook them all back up to the right place . . . 

00 21 59 12 LMP Other than that, the problems are really 

surprisingly few. 1 voided myself simultane- 
ously, dumped the urine collection. Cleaning 
myself up, 1 had relatively little mess. I 
utilized two of the tissues, each of which were 
used, folded, used again, and then used a third 
tissue which had earlier been soaked with water 
from the water gun, cleaning up rather well, arid 
then went ahead and used the wet-vipe that is 
provided. It's worth noting that those wet-wipes 
that come in the fecal bag do not have any Velcro 
on them for attaching to the wall, and that's a 
definite handicap.

all the debris out there. I picked it up 
Just at sunrise, and the AUTO OPTICS put 
something right in the middle of the sextant

Just a point light source, and I'm pretty sure 
that vas it, but like I say, there was no - -

- it could be 30 seconds late. That's pretty 
good, that's a minute and a half. We're well

Yes, I guess so; we'll have to. Well - I 
think it has gone to - AUTO OPTICS is gone 
now, and I've got to do it manually, and it's 
not there- 

That's right. 

Okay, Walt, I guess we better pitch down and 
go to the boresight attitude. And, well, 
we'll see what the hell we're going to get 
from the DSKY solution. I think we can go 
MANUAL if you want - probably be a little 
cheaper. And we could put it back to DAP 
when we get there. 

Right . 

Well, that was a surprise. 
It's the ... attitude. 

Okay, 52 degrees inertial is your pitch angle," 
Wally, and plus 9 degrees out of plane. Our 
V3ctor should be less than out of plane at 
TPF of zero. 

Well. Walt, oh, you don't have that. How 
did that check with the ground? They gave you 
some solutions, didn't they? Did they give 
you local vertical coordinates? 

They didn't give us any local vertical? 

Ckay , let me sec it. 

Here we ai-e , we're absolute - right on, 15-0, 
7.9, and 1.9 out of plane. Wally, I suggest 
we take about half of that out of plane . Not , 
not all of it. Let's roll up about 5 down and 
then you take out about - about k degrees of 
yaw. How's that? Well, let it fly to its 
attitude, and then you can override it manu- 
ally, and bring it into about k degrees. It'll 
be about 8 degrees out of plane and if we pull 
it back into about 1+ or 5 > I think it'll Just 
about jibe with the ground.

Well, just a minute, you're all - you are 
essentially all fore and aft. Man, perfect! 
Okay, I don't know if you want to - I'd leave 
it. I don't think you're going to do any 
better than that. We've got plus 1, plus 3, 
and minus 3 on the residuals. There's a 
chance that we're going to press on from there 

... residuals on the DELTA-V counter. 

Okay, okay. Now, I want to - okay, LOW Bll'

Anybody seen my checklist? Goddamned thing, 
where did it go? Well, so much for that. 

Wally, are you in CMC, AUTO? Okay, it should

Roger. The residual was very low on that TPI. 

Okay. I read them all, and they were very 
small. 

Now, don't be scared, this is a phony mark. 
It's going to be a big number. At least, 
I hope it's a big number. 

Not all that big, is it? 

Houston, Apollo 7- We made the TPI with the 
onboard solution, that's the computer solu- 
tion, in DAP. 

Walt, we've got real bad .COMM here at Tanan- 
arive. We can read that you are saying some- 
thing, but we can't make it out. 

The TPI burn was on the computer; onboard 
solution. 

We couldn't make it out. We made out the 
word "TPI" and that was all. 

Yes, I got it back, finally. Yes, I'll lay 
it there. I don't think we're going to - - 

Can you confirm that you've burned TPI? 

That's affirm. Affirmative. 

Roger, we got it. Thank you. 

Okay, I'll get you one in just a second. You 
want to give me a time hack?

Okay, thank you. No, it's 5 minutes from the 
burn. I Just wanted to see how long - how far 
away we were. 

If you want to. 

Wally, this thing is Just barely visible in 
the telescope now. It is very bright in the 
sextant, however; flashing light. 

Well, I'll tell you. That's really screwed 
up. We were doing fine up to then. I mean, 
hell, you lose it, you just have to - I didn't 
realize it would Just flat disappear like 
that . 

Man alive I 

This flashing light is absolutely spastic , on 
the booster. It's bright as hell sometimes, 
and then again, you caji hardly see it, and 
it's erratic, it's irregular, you know. It 
Isn't - it's either moving around or else 
those lights are screwed up, I don't know 
which. Yes, probably turning around.

Okay, you guys f^ive me a call for - we got 
about 8 minutes past or 52, whichever. Might 
as well. Okay, thank you. Okay, fine, I'll 
get it for you. Okay, I'll do one more mark, 
and then we'll go for the backup. 

Houston, Apollo 7^ Do you read now? 

No, you didn't either, or else you're going to 
use them right here. Okay, VERB 85 coming up.

That's why it's so hard to see, you know. 
Sometimes those lights get you right in the 
face and the next time they don't even flash. 

Upper or lower? 

(Laughter) Hey. Break out the champagne, 
God damn it , we made it I 

Right , I have a whole cup of coffee to cele- 
brate that mother! 

Yes. Get some l6's of that dude going around. 
That's great. That's a wild bomber, isn't it? 

I need a drink (laughter). 

How would you feel over there if that were a 
little bitty thing about 10 feet across and 
there were two guys in it? With no radar? 

Huh? 

Outstanding. Okay, watch it. He's coming in 
pretty fast. (Laughter) 

I would say, Murphy, that you done made a 
rendezvous, or we done made a rendezvous. 
And we done stabilized it. Looks pretty 
good. See? Yes, I think that's 'close enough 
in . . . 

I WEint to record on tape , it looks like all 
fo-or SLA panels are equally deployed now.

Just switched to S-band. 



01 06 00 kk CMP ... we had a DSKY solution of 3-6 to the 

midcourse. Walt had a 1.7 solution on his 
charts, and we split the difference and did 
2 feet per second aft that slid us right in 
there, and except for a little bit of 
cross-point corrections that Wally had to 
make at the tail end, we were nominal, right 
up the pike. According to NOUN kO guesstimates 
of fuel used, we've used about 70 - 60 feet 
per second. However, TTOUN hO integrates 
velocity when you are not thrusting, so I 
think we used somewhat less than that , prob- 
ably on the order of 60 to 65 feet per second.

strip down, took underwear off to do it. It's

That's right. 

What time did you put in there, Apollo T? 

I put in 1+8:26 - 25 or 26. I don't remember 
now.

CDR speaking. 

Roger. About the SPS prohlem: after dis- 
cussion down here i ''our feeling is that the 
SPS is GO. However, we have a DAP service 
module RCS deorbit capability at the present 
time. And we are within 10 feet per second 
of an SCS service module RCS deorbit 
capability. 

Roger. That was our figuring here, and we'd 
like to hold that in reserve as much as pos- 
sible. 

After the third . . . burn when we get to a 
lower perigee here, I think we'll feel much 
more comfortable. 

Wally, we're not able to read you at this 
time. We'll pick you up with that last trans- 
mission oyer Carnarvon.

Eoger, there are four stars hidden dimly in 
view at sunset minus 12 minutes. 


02 06 


19 


11 


CMP 


These stars are Just sort of visible at the - 
If you look off to one side, you can see them 
a little bit. Dark adapting wouldn't do any 
good for this particular test, because there's 
so much daylight in the instruments and the 



telescope. The ^ame light pattern I 
described before - an angular pattern around 
the edge of the thing and a broad belt across 
the center plus a big blob down at the bottom - 
it's not quite as bright as it was during the 
other test ...3 but it is there, and it's 
going to prevent me from being dark adapted. 




Day 3 159 

02 06 22 29 CMP I picked up about 25 stars at sunset minus 

8 minutes . The light - no identifiable con- 
stellatiops at this tim^, I don't know what 
part of the sky I'm looking at. I can take a 
look at somewhere at the southern hemisphere, 
• but - in the vicinity of Acamar or Achernar, 

j whichever it is, there's this hig void spot 

J down there; it's hard to find stars in, 

I 02 06 23 30 CMP One of the things that obscured this star data 

! is the fact whenever the jet fires or the 

(overboard vent vents, you get a lot of parti- 
cles that reflect light, and you can't see 
anything except that. All I see Is a big 
field of bright spots out there. 



02 06 26 08 CMP This at sunset minus h minutes and still 

obliterated by the field of particles, not 
possible to see the stars for the little bits 
and pieces coming out of the vent. 

02 06 29 50 LMP Okay, this is sunset. We still have the same 

problem, these particles are flying around 
and there's no way that I can - particles are 
still flying around at sunset, and there's no 
way I can distinguish stars from particles. 
I think the reason we didn't see these at the 
test at sunrise was that the spacecraft has 
been running cool through the dark side of 
the earth and probably wasn't boiling any 
water at that time. That terminates the star 
count .

02 06 51 10 CC Say again, Walt. 

02 06 51 11 LMP Roger, we're due to add more chlorine to our

of it to warrant adding a lot of chlorine to 
It.

Yes, it looks like there's an improper exit

a piece of paper to copy it down?

Okay, ready to copy. 

Okay, go ahead and select program 20. We'll 
then do VERB 57, ENTER. After that, you will 
key ENTER. Then you will select program - 
Now what that does is cause a reset of flag 
word 2, bit ih, which is set, which has pre- 
vented that mark from getting in. 

You broke off after key EHTER, Tom, program 20; 
VERB 57, ENTER, then key in ENTER, then pro-

Hello, Apollo 7» Houston.

Roger, did you get that procedure okay? 

Roger, we copied with program 20, VERB 57, 
ENTER, key another ENTER, go back to POO,

and you should be all set to use program 51

DAY U 



03 00 18 2h LMP Go ahead. 

03 00 18 35 CDR From the period of TO hours through approxi- 

mately 72 hours , the timeline was rather awk- 
ward in that we had a problem with the MARK 
\. button on the computer. The whole team on 

; board was a little behind the curve. ' They 

j were sleeping well, finally, and I wanted for 

\ them to sleep awhile. We needed three men 

i really to hook up the events in that - in a 

\ really effective time. The state vectors we 

j were working normally would have been a very 

! alniple task for one man to run.

I 03 00 26 01 CDR Debriefing on the period from 70 hours to 

t 72 hours: as a result of the delayed pickup 

f of the total crew, the events snowballed, and 

; we fell behind on the alignment. We did man- 

' age to get the canister change number 6 com- 

i pleted on time. About this time, we were

I 03 00 26 Ul CDR Roger. 

' 03 00 26 U5 CDR And as a result of this , the rendezvous 

j transponder test was pretty well blown apart. 

[ We did manage to get the TV camera out, in 

I that that would seem to be the big crisis 



J 



ever since launch day. 

03 00 27 18 CDR We did attempt, and wasted some fuel, on the 

alignment. Finally, I noted the beginning of 
the constellation Orion in the number 2 window. 
And I had Donn pick that up in the LEB. In 
the mark procedure utilized in the 50-50 . . . 
termination, the procedure used when the MARK 



Day k 175 

button wouldn't work. The PMP called - cor- 
rection, the command module pilot made the 
mark at the shaft and trunnion angle - CMP 
timed the shaft and trunnion angles while the 
spacecraft was in tight DEADBAWD, SPS limit 
cycle ON. The angles were read off by the 
CDR, and recorded by the LMP. The CMP then 
proceeded to the next position to record the 
shaft and trunnion angle, and the LMP called 
them out, and the CMP inserted them. 

03 00 29 U6 CDR In this f)rocedure , two stars were used for 

the first track in program 53. They were 
Rigel and Aldeharan, and the star angle dif- 
ference was 00039- In program 5*+, the same 
two stars were used and relative ... holding, 
and the star angle difference was OOOI8. The 
gyro-torq.uing angle after this program 5I+ was 
0002 on all four axes, less than 0.025 ^ less 
1 than 0.03. 

; 03 00 32 28 CDR This task worked out to be satisfactory so that 

i we could have used it for any type of burn if 

i necessary. 

t . 03 00 32 kl CDR The - it was completed. We picked up Hawaii 

^ acquisition, and the call was made to get ready 

"T" for the rendezvous radar trEinsponder test. 

f 03 00 33 OU CDR And this was rushing us much too fast. We 

I didn't have but 2h minutes' lead time roughly 

J to heat the transponder up to operating temper- 

I ature. 

j 03 00 33 15 CDR We used about 1 degree per second in pitch, 

j ' using ACCEL COMMAND to attempt to get into 

1. the desired attitude for the transponder test. 

I ' 03 00 33 26 CDR This at least did help us , if the transponder 

i test had failed to get into an ideal attitude 

! for a Gulf Coast pass for the television. 

( ■ . 

t 03 00 33 37 CDR The television camera results I assure - I'm 

sure, spoke for themselves. 

03 00 33 Ul CDR It is necessary to observe, however, that this 

is conrpounding a rather difficult test. 



r 



Day 1; 1T6 

! 03 00 33 kQ CDR In retrospect, my decision not to use the 

i television camera prior to the first SPS "burn 

\ was sound. We had too much to do to get the 

! television camera ready. There was too much 

attention paid to the results of the tele- 
vision camera rather than anything else, as 
vas typical in this pass. 

03 00 3h 09 CDR I "believe that television should be left as 

the last low-priority test objective in rela- 
tion to any other event that may occur simul- 
taneously. 

03 00 3k 28 CDR Typically, with a television camera on board, 

the crew reacted to it, and we fortunately 
had no problems occur, but we were paying 
much too much attention to the TV camera 
and not to the spacecraft. This is why I 
object to the TV camera in the first place. 

03 00 2h hj CDR A candid-camera syndrome is a very awkward one 

to have in' a spacecraft. 

03 00 35 11 CDR And this is the end of a - - 

03 00 35 13 CT ARIA 2; AOS in about 5 DB. 

03 00 35 ll* CMP This is the command module pilot. Time is 

72 hours 50 minutes. I'd like to register a 
comment or two concerning the optics. 

03 00 35 21 CMP In general, the optics drive is very smooth 

and much better than we've seen on any of the 
simulators. The visibility, however, in the 
telescope is no better, in fact, a little 
worse than what we experienced in the CMS at 
the Cape. It was most disappointing to find 
that you really do have to bury your eye in 
that thing for a good 5 to 10 minutes - - 



L 



03 00 1*9 ^+9 CMP - - vlthout a well-defined pattern, it's pretty- 

bard to find anything by itself. 



03 00 50 11 CMP This is the command module pilot at T2 hours 

and 50 minutes into the flight of Apollo 7- 
I'd like to register a comment or two concern- 
ing the GM optics. First, the optics seems 
to drive very smoothly, and it's very easy to 
control in both EESOLVSD and DIRECT at all 
speeds for landmark- tracking purposes or star 
marking or whatever. It's much smoother than 
we've seen on any simulator. The part that's 
disappointing, however, is the extremely poor 
visibility in the telescope. It's no better, 
in fact, a little worse than what we saw in 
the CMS, and you resilly have to bury your eyes 
in the thing for about 5 to 10 minutes to get 
dark adapted before you can recognize anything. 
In general, if you have bright stars in a well- 
defined, well-known pattern you can find them. 
We have had a fair amount of luck with the 
pick-a-pair routine. It appears that as long 
as we're looking at all sky and not much earth 
in the field of view, the thing will work pretty 
well, so that's a help for doing P52. The tough 
part, of course, is doing 51' s when you're com- 
ing up from scratch. 

03 00 51 38 CMP The field of view in the telescope ends at 

about 38 degrees trunnion. The field of view 
in the sextant, however, goes out beyond 
50 degrees, which is a very curious thing, and 
we had not expected that. So, effectively, the 
field, the 20 - the 38-degree alarm that often 
comes up in the various programs is a real con- 
straint as far as the use of the telescope. 

03 00 53 26 CDR This is CDR, we tried to

03 03 06 13 MP Houston, I've been able to get this up to a

03 06 1*9 26 IMP 78 hours and 10 minutes into the flight, ve 

noticed a puddle of water that was formed 
"between the suit stowage "bag and the aft 
bulkhead. There was probably approximately 
1 pint of fluid, which we identified as water. 
And by tracking around the spacecraft, we 
located the source as coolant line in - at 
the - below the commander's left shoulder in 
the curved panel at the corner , which has the 
perforated holes in it . We removed the panel 
with tool E and located the condensation on 
the line behind the panel. Apparently, this 
water settled to the aft bulkhead, probably 
during the last SPS burn, and it would probably 
be advisable for us to check that periodically 
and make sure we're not collecting any more 
condensed water.

just about the time we were losing you at 
Canary. Did you find out anything on that? 

Roger, I found out whatever it was went away, 
I think - at least that's - up to now. 

Whatever it was went away, huh? 

Right. 

Did you arrive at that just from going through 
this malfunction procedure , is that how you 
did that? 

Well, not totally. 
Okay, good deal. 

Wait until Wally gets up here. He may want 
to run through it again. 

Okay. 

1, 2, 3, h. One - one update. 

I suggest somebody for tomorrow get to work 
on the sleep plan. You've cut us out of an 
hour's sleep already. 

Roger . 

We all three have our colds. I asked for an 
hour and a half sleep for each of us last 
night, and that apparently was ignored. 

Houston, Apollo 7. 

At 90 hours and 1+0 minutes - 

The sighting by - of the red airglow that was 
reported on the Mercury flight was experienced. 
It was a reddish-brown glow about the color of 
the: lower half of the night airglow. The 
night airglow is about 2.8 degrees above - the 
top of the night airglow is 2.8 degrees above 
the horizon. This particular glow is h degrees

was something about the sleep cycle being 
shortened. And when I came on, the timeline 
showed the commander and LMP sleep cycle ex- 
tended to 91 hours. Is that the way you 
understood it?

Tananarive M&O, did you copy? 
Houston, Apollo 7- Stand ty. 

Houston, Apollo 7. We turned that ON, right on 
the minute. 

Roger. Understand you did have it ON. Thajik 
you. 

That's affirmative. 

Apollo 7, Houston. 1 minute LOS; Mercury at 11. 

Roger, thank you. Good evening, Ron. 

Houston, do you still read? 

Apollo 7 J Houston. Mercury standing by. 

Roger. 

Hey, Ron. I wanted to confirm that ve rechecked 
our switches - - 

30 seconds LOS; Tananarive at 20. 

This is CDR. Some of our equipment is 
starting to show signs of age. The Exer-Genie, 
although used somewhat extensively, is starting 
to fray and not run smoothly. The bootees on 

Teflon suit are starting to unravel and come 
apart. The microphone on my right-hand headset 
is cracked, and, except for being taped together, 
would not function. 

The ear tube on Walt Cunningham's right-hand 
headset is coming apart. The COMM carrier 
connectors to the suits are all getting frayed 
at the fitting where they make up to the suit. 
I think it is because wo take these off and on 
with H great amount of freq.uency. , 

We've had a problem with the wristwatch straps. 
They are much too long for a normal shirtsleeve 
attire and are just about right for the pressure 



i 



Day 5 198 



suit. They should be made as small as possible 
for the pressure suit, and then they might have 
a chance of fitting the wrist with two turns 
around it. 

ok 05 U5 25 CDR Now, one technique was used on Eisele's watch, 

to pass the watch through a Velcro batnd. And 
some technique similar to this might work for 
both suited and misuited work. 

OU 05 U6 OI+ CDR We've had a .continuous problem with the TOmm 

back in that the slider plate for removal of 
the back will not prevent actuation of the 
shutter. This is not designed that way in 
the stock Hasselblad; it has been modified 
nicely to cause this effect in our crew camera. 

O't' 05 k6 38 CDR The last-minute changes in film seem to be par 

for the course in this business. And it's a 
big mistake to have four different ASA films 
onboard, particularly when we pass the camera 
back and forth rapidly in a drifting mode when 
a good target's available. We shot our SOII7 
the first day or so at ASA 6h. And this was 
so we would not waste the 368 as well, which 
is also ASA 6h. Now we have S0121, nominally 
for shooting at ASA 60, and soon we will be 
shooting Panatomic-X at ASA U5. This is not 
the way to run a railroad. There are many - 
there are many films available with a common 
ASA available. For high-speed work, naturally 
we prefer the ASA 1000. 

OU 05 1+8 06 CDR At this point in the flight, over 100 hours, 

it's almost impossible to believe we started 
this flight out with the pressure suit on. 
The environment just doesn't even seem to be 
acceptable to the big Impy. And I suspect 
that we are going to put them on with great 
misgivings after the time required. If our 
head conditions are not cleared up in time, I 
believe we probably will reject using those 
suits. This is not a decision at this point, 
but merely an opinion.

OU 22 11 35 CO Roger. I - Wally, we've been doing some 

looking into this torq^ue business. There 
have been some calculations made that show 
that there is 0.5- foot-pound torque possible 
going through perigee when you are broadside - 
going through perigee broadside to the direction 
of flight. This produces a possible rate of 
0.03 degree per second per second In pitch due 
to drag. I would like to ask you if this 
torq.uing rate that you experienced exists 
throughout a complete revolution, or if it's 
more pronounced or noticeable at perigee only? 

ok 22 12 23 CDR We've already discovered it's more pronounced 

toward perigee. We were looking at it last 
night going across the - the States, and 
then across the Atlantic, and it was very 
strong in there. Had a tendency to put a 
pitchup; it didn't matter what the roll was. 
As it came across perigee, then it would start 
torquing right back, and we tended to go into 
SCS most of the time.

Just to fill you in. Jack, I'm doing a slow - 
a very slow roll, near - near SEIF. 

It's about pitched to about 26 degrees. And 
we're not getting the torquing effect we had 
before. We're getting some more water out of 
the suit loop hoses, and it may be a function 
of the burn to bring the water up, but ob- 
viously we're getting it.

Roger, thank you. 

Houston, Apollo 7- How do you read through 
ARIA? 

Apollo 7, . • . 

Roger, read the same, thank you. 

Apollo 7, Houston. Did you call? 

Negative, Ron. I'm just standing ty. 

Roger, ahout 1 minute to LOS now and Tananarive 
at 01. 

Roger. 

Did you catch our TV pass today? 

Affirmative, it was a good one again. The 
quality wasn't quite as good as it was the 
other 2 days . I ' ve got some dope on that 
ALC switch I'll try to pass to you at some 
time this evening. 

Okay. It never seems to work as good with 
the ALC in. 

Roger. 

Frame 16, magazine Sierra, taken on the coast 
of Guayaquil, Ecuador, at 101 hours 53 minutes, 
approximately. It's right on the coastline. 

LMP, 10 clicks of water at 125 hours 30 min- 
utes. 

Apollo 7, Houston through Tananarive. 

Roger, Ron. Reading you 5.hy. How me? 

Roger, not too had this time, Walt. Have a 
little question on the chlorination. Have you 
chlorinated yet? 




fOlUyUMUAL Day 6 211. 



05 06 05 15 LMP No, and it's not our intention to chlorinate 

today. Vfe chlorinated yesterday. You 
haven't had any objections about chlorinating 
every other day, have you? 

05 06. 05 26 CC Roger, I understand your intent on the thing. 

Do you still have a bad taste in it? Is 
this the reason? 

05. 06 05 35 LMP We Just now are starting to feel well enough 

about colds and the water is tasting palatable 
enough, so we feel like - like cutting down 
the cold by drinking as much fluid as we can. 
But if we chlorinate, the taste of it after- 
ward would be very bad for several hours , and 
it's not really good until the next day. 

05 06 06 00 CC Okay. We understand and do not chlorinate to- 

day, we'll pass up today and chlorinate tomor- 
row. 

05 06 06 09 LMP Okay, very good. I think that's a pretty 

sensible schedule. We'll expect to chlorinate 
tomorrow . 

05 06 06 16 LMP Got two questions for you, Ron, if you're ready 

to copy. 

05 06 06 20 CC Say again. 

05 06 06 22 LMP One, what is the precise inclination of our 

orbit? Second is, we'd like to get a chart 
update for our RCS chart onboard. 

05 06 06 36 CC Roger, What's the precise inclination of 

yoiir orbit? Is that what you said? 

05 06 06 Uo LMP Right, and Wally would like to hear the 

proposed fix on the BIOMED sensors because 
he is getting suited up again. 

05 06 06 51 CC Roger. We'll get your information on the BIOtJ[ED 

sensors. Walt, your inclination is 31.25- 

05 06 07 08 LMP Roger.

And on your BIOMED sensors - what we want to 
use - or use the two good ones in the middle 
of your chest, and those two good ones will 
have to be connected to the hlue signal 
conditioner, which means you're going to have 
the wires that go into the signal conditioners. 

Okay, you want the two single leads that go to 
the hlue signal conditioner, right? 

Yes , that ' s affirmative . 

Okay, that means that Wally would like to 
unhook the connector on the other signal 
conditioner and use those leads for the 
sternal lead? 

That's affirmative, that's affirmative. 

Okay, we'll try. If that doesn't work, we 
will just have to write it off because he's 
been trying to keep that thing together for 
around 126 hours. He'll try it. 

Boger . 

Apollo 7, Houston. 1 minute LOS; Mercury 
at 2lt. 

Roger, and when you can get it, we'd like 
an update for our onboard RCS chart . 

Wilco, we'll have it available at Mercury. 

How did you ever get Baker to be 50 and Dog 
to be 52? , 

Hot quite sure, but it works out that way. 
You still there. Eon? 
LOS; I think I missed you. 
Is that drogues or main?

anrpere-hours remaining.

05 07 37 2h CMP Roger, thank you. I'm always kind of puzzled 

the way those numbers change. Doesn't seem 
to be consistent with the ones you get 
earlier sometimes. 

05 07 37 35 CC I missed that. Say again. 

i05 07 37 38 CMP Roger the battery numbers. 

05 07 37 1+0 CC Roger. 

\ 05 07 37 1*8 CMP Ron, I have a comment to pass on to Frank . . . 

i at least as soon as you can. The hose that 

I you vent the waste water in, it goes to a 

t , QD fitting that's covering the water control 

f panel. But where it passes through the 

; water control panel, it has leaked eveiytime 

i we dujnped the waste water, and a large bubble 

(; of water has formed there. Ve could possibly 

_ put on there a pressed-on fitting, there was 

no lowering in it and that could make a big 

;■ difference. 



05 07 38 27 CC Apollo 7, Houston. I can't make too much 

out of that other than understanding there 
was a large puddle of water by the water 
fitting on the waste water disconnect. 

05 07 38 38 CMP Roger. That's affirmative. And you might 

look into putting a different type fitting 
for attaching to the water control panel to 
save the problem of water leaking there every 
time we dump. 

05 07 38 5U CC We'll play back our tapes. Maybe we can read 

it off the tapes. I couldn't read you that 
time.

You know - it's significant to me, Wally, 
that we do flare before you run into black 
skies. It's as wide as all the rest of the 
colors put together. 

It is, isn't it? It's pretty wide out there,

Yes. -

Roger. 

Apollo 7, Houston. You might try center 
position BIOMED. 

Center position on what? 

BIOMED switch. 

Roger. 

Apollo 7 J Houston through Mercury. 
Roger. 

Roger. Loud and clear, Donn. 
Okay. 

Ron, I got a couple of conmients relative to 
program 23 navigation. 

Roger, go. 

Okay, the reason we knocked that off yester- 
day was that when we got into attitude at 
the rate for P23, there was no star in the 
sextant, and the horizon we had in the sex- 
tant for a fixed line of sight was very 
indistinct. In fact, it was pretty hard to 
pick out anything you could use. There was 
one line-of-sight pass though, a repeatable 
line - it was pretty ticklish. Suhseq^uent 
to that, I did a P52 AUTO OPTICS check, and 
foimd that the star was up there, hut it 
was at a slightly different shaft and trunnion 
angle. That was the reason we didn't pick 
it up. 

Roger. 

So the gist of it all is that I don't think 
it was too worthwhile or realistic a way to 
perform that program. It wasn't designed 



to be used that way, but I'd suggest that 
if we have any time or fuel later in the 
flight , we try to use a lunar landmark and 
stars-

perform landmark tracking on the three

Okay. 

Now at lk6 plus 1|0, we've put a P23 in there

just talking about, I think. We just added 
that.

Roger. You're loud and clear, also. How 
were the results of that third landmark, 
Donn? 

I got five marks on it. And all the updates 
to the state vector were zero, again. And 
a small correction to the landmark locations 
something on the order of 0.03 or O.Ol* mile. 
I think it is rather presumptuous of the 
computer to assume its own state vector's 
perfect, and that the landmark is in the 
wrong place. 

Donn, you started out real good, and then 
you faded out. We'll catch you over Carnar- 
von on that report. We copy that the updates 
on the state vector vere all zips.

ROLL. We counted the pulses. We developed a 
2-degree-per-second roll rate, 0.2-degree-per-

It took seven pulses. It put on a two-tenths 
of a second, - degree-per-second - roll rate. 
Seven pxilses put out nicely to zero, and in 
rolling back, it would take eight pulses for 
0.2 degree per second.

Walt, I didn't copy that; COMM is pretty poor 
here over Tananarive because of the low-elevation 
angle on the antenna. We'd like for you to 
switch your PMP POWER to AUX for this COMM 
test that we are going to do over Guam.

self, and the meal comes out some other hole.

drinking spout goes into the bag. It pulled 
apart down - it wa^ not an external leak. It

06 20 ik 57 CDR Bill, I'd like to have you go over again, 

what you had proposed for the DELTA-V counter 
; setting on this turn. 

I 06 20 15 07 CC Okay, th2 DELTA-V counter setting will he 

[ 1728.0. What this does, it's 100 - 100 feet 

higher than the DELTA-V that you want to get, 

and you will turn the thrust switches OFF at 

100.0 indication on the DELTA-V counter. In 

c 

other words, with the hundred feet remaining. 

i06 20 15 35 CDR What's the reasoning "behind that? The thing 

is built to turn itself OFF at zero. That's 
[ one of our primary checks on the SCS cutoff

about 1 or 2 degrees , and the system responded 
very well coming back into null. And the roll 
went off about 2 degrees at the beginning of 
the burn on the G&N phase and came bacK in 
before I took over. I took over when all error 
needles were practically null, and the dis- 
placement was very minute , meaning that the 
ground update on the Q-ball was veiy good. 

The burn proceeded normally until cutoff. 
One, the DELTA-V counter was hit by direct 
sunrays and was almost impossible to read. 
Two, a change in procedure that had not been 
planned for was implemented Just before the 
bum. An extra 50 feet per second was added 
to the DELTA-V counter to permit a DELTA-V 
thrust cutoff rather than a DELTA-V counter 
cutoff. And this, coupled with the sunrays 
on the DELTA-V counter, caused us to overbum 
50 feet per second. 

... prior to U8 hours elapsed, and apparently 
they're not particularly worried about that. 

Thank you. I'm glad they are not. 

That's very reassuring. 

If you read, rock your tower, will you? 

Well, we had to have some practice.' 

Yes. You'll have something to say in your

the telescope - both of them are syinmetrical, 
that is , they are the same trunnion angle out 
to the edge of the field of vision all the way 
around. Telescope is about h2 degrees from 
the trunnion and the sextant is- .about 56 de- 
grees. I noticed when we are looking at stars, 
that the field of view in the telescope seems 
to be more like 38 or 39- I think probably 
this is because there may be some greater light 
loss out at. the edges that obscures stars, but 
does not obscure bright earth objects,

looks like it is probably a good pint . We 
marked the perimeter of the puddle on the aft 
bulkhead, and somebody can calculate how much 
water was In there. 



06 21 36 58 LMP You might make a note. They're going to have 

to make some allowances for kind of a reverse

bunches up off the floor.

07 01 03 31 IMP Hey, Jack. You may have lost your data read- 

out, but I've got good ones onboard here. 
And I've checked the oxidizer line temperature 
down below, and looks like it's a little some- 
thing, little under 170, propellant tank tem- 
perature 165 , and that should be as good as 
your data readout. What I'm saying is we're 
never going to get down to the point where 
I'm going to check the heater out. I might 
suggest that when we do terminate this test, 
it would be usefiil to turn on the SPS line 
heaters to A/B and watch for a rise - at 
least to see if they're working at all. 

07 01 OU 03 CC Okay, we copy that.

procedure for the secondary evaporator in the

have come up with the procedures if you want 
to copy it . 

Is this something that somebody dreamed up 
after all these months? I've been told you 
can not reservice the secondary evaporator. 

That is correct. We've come up with a proce- 
dure to do it . 

I don't know how everybody gets so smart in 
one week's time, but I'll go ahead and copy 
it. How long is it? 

Faux steps . 

Very long steps? 

Ho, real short. 

Hit me with it . 

Okay, you want to turn the evaporator and 
water control switch secondary to AUTO. 

That's where it is sinyway, isn't it? 

Ro^er. Then you want to turn your secondary 
coolant loop EVAP switch to EVAP for 5, plus 
or minus 1, seconds, then reset for 10, plus 
or minus 1, seconds. 

Roger. You copy that, Walt? 

I got evaporator water control secondary to 
AUTO, which is where it normally is when it 
is running. I go to the EVAP position for 
5 seconds and then reset for 10 seconds , I 
assume immediately afterwards . Is that cor- 
rect? 

Affirmative. 5 seconds, plus .or minus 1 sec- 
ond, and then reset to plus or minus 1 second. 
Okay, then repeat this - this step above for 
l+O - for a recommended 1+0 cycles. 



07 OU 1+9 58 mP Forty times I do that, huh? 

07 ok 50 01 CC Roger, 1+0 cycles is the desired, "but 20 cycles

07 Ol+ 50 1I+ LMP Okay, I just might do it, tut go on record 

here as saying, people that dream up proce-

you can reservlce. And this is kind of Mickey

it has something to do with that secondary

07 11 h9 00 CMP I "believe you're right. But the secondary 

loop test is still going on, while that's 
going on. But tell them to check into it 
anyway and see what they say. 

Will do. 

Thank you.

Right ,

Okay, fine. I'll talk to you then. 
l80 hours 30 minutes - 

l80 hours 30 minutes; one of the sensors on

Bill, we got a ... for the day. | 

You were garhled. Say again, please. | 

We have a problem for the day. | 

What's that? { 

We are very worried about the ears. They're I 

all^blocked up with these colds. Every once ; 
In a while I get one to clear. And we are 

seriously considering reentering shirtsleeve. ; 

I mean, we're afraid we can't clear out ears : 
on the way down. If we do have to clear them 
on the way down, we have to take the helmets 

off, and then they become a hazard bouncing _| 

around the cockpit. We feel the risk of "I 

ruptiiring our eardrums is higher than the | 

risk of injury from not having the suits on. ! 

We realize the restraint harness will fit j 

us closely. j

they agree with your decision to use this

The one problem., of course, that ve discovered 
during the flight and then forgot about, was 
that a xjrine dump dropped Just before sunset, 
and we were deluged with frost particles that 
light the spectrum. In addition, we had a 
dump, probably from the water bottle, and that 
kept us- blinded for a good 10 minutes into the 
sunset. This is not fatal on this particular 
run, but it's something to remember in debrief- 
ing for the lunar crew

Well, we've been. thinking to clear the air on

to don the suits in any case, and have the 
heel protection. Okay, then the q,uestlon of 
whether you put helmets on or whether you 
release them, whether you can cleEir your nose 
at the start with it on, and not tied to the 
neck ring, or off. I think that's all subject 
to some discussion. You guys got a better 
feel for that than anybody else. 

Yes. 

Okay. Well, we will - we'll just go ahead

08 13 06 38 CC That's affirmative. 

08 13 06 h2 CMP Okay, I don't think they need gimbal angles 

for ZEEO OPTICS. What do you want to use, 
I jiist the - the sextant, or the telescope? 

[ I guess the sextant would be quicker , huh? 

08 13 06 55 CC They would prefer the sextant and use the

Day 9 298 



08 13 07 1*3 CC Okay, the purpose is for - to get an idea on 

the difference "between the apparent horizon 
and the real-earth horizon for the calciilations 
on some midcourse direction. 

08 13 07 57 CMP Yes, I understand that, but I don't under- 

stand what use it is hecause iiildcourse naviga- 
tioa is some several thousand miles out from the 
earth. And at that point, this horizon Jazz 
doesn't mean anything. Hell, it's all going to 
he one. I mean, the point is the airglow is not 
going to he 20 feet wide anymore when you're 
out a 1000 miles. It's the only place this 
prog?: am applies anyway, 

08 13 08 23 CC Roger, we see what you're saying, but we still 

don't have a hack on what this difference is; 
we don't have any hack what the difference is, 
so we'd like to get at least one data point 
on that.

08 21 U9 01 CMP Time, 213 hours k9 minutes; they are attempting 

to perform the horizon landmark test, which is 
going to ... marks on the horizon. The first 
, mark is done with the sextant. They got as far 

as step 3 and proceeded to take it to step h, 
which is unknown landmark. They got a PROGRAM 
ALARM and a RESTART. These li^ts and 
they were unable to enter a VERB, a NOUN, or 
anything like that. After waiting several 
minutes and deliberating, they decided to 
take the option of performing the so-called 
NO-GO effort, to punch the MARK 3 REJECT 
button and the RESET button simultaneously. 
This did, in fact, release the RESTART. How- 
ever, it called up the PROGRAM ALARM, and we 
have a 1302. It's a SQRT augment negative 
argument. Apparently we're in the reentry. 
The problem was, first, marking on the horizon 
and accepting those marks , somehow calling upon 
the computer to work with square roots of negative 
numbers. And it didn't like that too well.

08 21 52 57 CMP Roger, Jack. I Just gave you a great P22 bitch 

and a dandy readout prohlem. I've got a 
PROGRAM ALARM and a RESTART light. I'm unable 
to get out of it because of this GO jam thing 
that's part REJECT and RESET. This wiped out 
the RESTART finally. Called the alarm 1302, 
which has the practical effect that the computer 
was trying to work with negative square roots , 
or square roots with negative numbers, rather. 
I'd like to compliment all the fine planners 
who had a hand in that one.

going to GO Jam vhich was ... the computer

I punched the PROCEED button at step 10 in the

to observe the bell of the big engine from 
the number 2 window of the command module. 
The attitude is approximately zero roll, zero 
yaw, l80 degrees pitch at sunset, and when 
the urine dump occurred, there were a large 
number of sparkles that formed a light pattern 
down to the number 2 window. Now, the sun 
in the background in back of the command module 
would light up the sparkles. You could see a 
tunnel of silvery stuff which lasts for many 
hundreds of feet. And the silhouette of the 
command module , including that of the big

to do ia remove the sextant and telescope

would he with your eyeball about a foot away

09 10 31 01 CMP Well, there may be some, but it sure doesn't 

affect the view that you get through the

took off. 

09 10 31 15 CC Say again, Donn.

^ 09 10 31 1*2 CMP Okay. If the eyepiece is installed, the 

I view through the optics is as good now as 

I ' it was when we started the flight. 

09 10 31 51 CC Roger, understand. What we'd like to do is 

get your evaluation with the eyepieces off,

those lenses, though.

There's 0.2 degree per second already in 
yaw, Jioat as we thought. 

Yes , I see it . 

Okay. Let's take it out now. 

... tenth of a degree on the other two axes. 

Roger. 

Let's go to LOCK now. We don't want to go 
any farther. It's pretty fast to get 
0.2 degree per second. 

Okay. I'm making a comment. 

Hello, Bill, did you read? 

Negative . 

Okay, on the water - waste water dump. I 
let the rate build up to almost 0.2 degree 
per second in VENT and corrected it back 
to the opposite direction to about 0^1 de- 
gree per second. It's now at 2.2 degrees 
per second back again. Report use con- 
siderable. The vent, of course, is causing 
the spacecraft to go to the right. 

The last remark ■ on the water vent - coirpled 
with the perigee- torq.ue phenomenon, so the 
two may be complementary, even if they are 
aligned out of plane at this time.

Hey, Jack, fuel cell 2 seems to "be a little 
more temperamental today than it has been in 
the last 3 or 1* days. It's climbing a little 
faster and a little higjier. Does the trend 
indicate that for the next hour and 6 min- 
utes it will stay below 200? 

Okay, Walt, you are about 3 by here at 
Tananarive. Copy fuel cell number 2 being 
a little more temperamental today than pre- 
viously.

Go ahead. 

Okay, A and D are your "best quads; B and C 
are above the DAP redline, not uncomfortably 
now, but I recommend that, you be very 
sparing when you use quads Baker and ChsLrlie, 
and so when you're maneuvering, don't use 
more than 5 pounds of RCS fuel for this - 
your picture taking. 

Roger, that's about all we need. 

Okay, fine, and we're recoinmendlng B and D 
ROLL. 

B and D ROLL, Roger. 

Jack, are you getting these PIPA bias 
numbers on downlink? 

Okay, we're getting them now. 

Would you like me to read you the results 
or have you gotten all the stuff off the 
tape?

give us a few seconds here, and we'll have 
it all down.

09 23 55 37 CC Okay, Donn, would you read out the PIPA 

bias, I guess we lost it - we lost the data. 



t 09 23 55 Ul CMP Okay, Jack, the FIPA bias I got was: 

X plus 0 - 0.09, Y Is zero, Z is plus 0.08. 
The bias compensation that's presently loaded 

5 . is plus IO50U, plus 0, plus O.OTli'tO. So 

they're all very close to the actual. 

09 23 56 09 CC Okay, copy that. 

09 23 56 11 CDR Jack, unless I don't understand this EMS - 

what I do to the R'E bias is run it in 
DELTA-V and AUTO with - 30 seconds prior to 
burn and the duration of the bum. That's 
the only thing we're going to do in flight 

— anyway. If anybody has any better ideas, 

I'll do it. That's all - that's all you 

I. use it for.
